Sands Murray-Wassink - I Am Not American (I love Adrian, I miss Carolee and I follow Hannah)

Auto Italia presents I am not American (I love Adrian, I miss Carolee, I follow Hannah), an exhibition by Sands Murray-Wassink.

The exhibition brings together an expansive collection of paintings, photography, writing and ephemera created between 1993–2021 as part of Murray-Wassink’s ongoing explorations of gender, mental health and sexuality.

A queer cult figure in the Amsterdam art scene for nearly two decades, Murray-Wassink is a painter, body artist, writer and perfume collector indebted to various forms and permutations of intersectional feminist and queer art, with Carolee Schneemann, Hannah Wilke and Adrian Piper serving as key coordinates.

I am not American (I love Adrian, I miss Carolee, I follow Hannah) is the latest chapter in this collective performance of archiving and intergenerational process of remembering, These paintings are enmeshed within an installation of correspondences, found objects and photographs amassed through the artist’s relationships, conversations and encounters with a generation of feminist artist role models.
